Aleksandar "kassad" Trifunović has been hired by Indian team Wolf to help them prepare for ESL One Cologne and coach them at the $250,000 event itself.
A few weeks ago we announced that the ex-LGB slot will be redistributed to an Indian representative, while also mentioning that ESL India is looking for a coach to help the qualifier winners prepare for ESL One Cologne.
Main favorites Wolf ended up winners of India's qualifier and they have now found their coach for the next two weeks in form of Serbian retired player Aleksandar "kassad" Trifunović.
Trifunović was a member of the best Balkan team in CS:GO so far, which went under various names – iNation, Refuse, GamePub – last of which saw him turn to a coaching role and help Ayush "astaRR" Deora & co. beat Astana Dragons and finish third at SLTV StarSeries VIII last December.
Since the disbandment of GamePub earlier this year he has been inactive, barring a few appearances at local tournaments with mix teams, and now he will travel to Mumbai, India where he will coach the biggest underdogs of the $250,000 tournament.
"I am glad to be somewhat back in the CS:GO scene and that I have the chance to help someone. As far as this whole project is concerned, the guys in team Wolf are very positive people and they have a lot of potential, while the people behind this whole thing are very serious and professional and I am proud to be a part of this project." – Trifunović said to HLTV.org before embarking on his trip to India
For the next two weeks Wolf will have:
Aleksandar "kassad" Trifunović (coach)
Trifunović will accompany the team to Gamescom where he will continue being their coach as they attempt to upset one of the big dogs in group A - NiP, HellRaisers and Epsilon.

they will probably get destroyed, but i wont be surprised if they do better than expected also
if they are serious about this and they study demos and play hard for the next 2 weeks they could cause an upset.

Almost in both the match, nip or (hr/epsilon) will win the knife round. So, they will choose ct most probably. So wolf will start as t. And however wolf try right now on strats and team play but as they are not experienced of LAN pressure and strong defense, they will not be able to stick their plan. They will start rush in each round and they will be lost.
If there will be ct wolf, then as you have said it is absolutely correct that they have to be concentrated and perfect in holding positions and sites. but i doubt they could do it against top level teams and also in pressured LAN conditions.
I will follow these guys just to see what impact a coach can have.
